Since we don't have a Pistols forum, I guess this goes in the "carry weapons" forum. :)

Damn... I gotta admit this new Python looks GOOD. I might have to save my pennies for one!

But, I may also wait for the Royal Blue version to come out. I think THAT'S the "right" finish for a Python.

May have moved to the very top of my wish list. Oh, baby!

No way I can afford / justify an original. I hear they're going for 5-figures these days.

But, this looks pretty sweet. And, I've been jonesing for a full-size revolver... was figuring on either a S&W 686 or a Ruger equivalent. But, now this comes along... <drool!>

Similar jonesing going on here and new Python would be awesome, though I'd be content with a S&W or Ruger, too.

Initial tests with people and gauges have them saying the draw stroke on the new ones in DA is smoother than the old ones.
They definitely sound interesting for sure.
Perhaps DA trigger pull?
Wondered the same thing myself, Rick! :dunno
Yeah... I think he meant the trigger. The old Colt had a rep for a trigger that stacked badly. The new trigger is reportedly MUCH improved with no stacking.

Even if you end up buying this new Colt, you still need a 686 in your life. Smiths have the best revolver actions bar none imho.

I may have to re-evaluate not being a revolver guy... that’s pretty!

Yeah... I'm starting to think... a 4" barrel model in stainless. And, a 6" in Royal Blue, if and when they come out with them. TWO of 'em!

HIckok45 puts the 2020 Python through its paces, and it exhibits a couple of failures.

He talks about it at the beginning of the video. You can then skip ahead to about the 30:20 mark.

Watched the whole thing. Well... that's a bit concerning. But, I bet they get it sorted out. There's too much at stake. The good thing is that it's probably going to be a while before I can swing one. So, hopefully when I'm ready, they'll be ready! :)

Colt needs to get ahead of this PRONTO. Or, they're done. Forever.

Watched the video, too and wholeheartedly agree. My guess is something changed between the design, build, test phase and full scale production phase of this new production gun. A brand new Colt revolver should be 100% reliable. Still want one but only AFTER Colt gets this insidious cylinder issue worked out.

Here's mine. Royal blue, 4" barrel, produced in 1981. (My lousy photos come nowhere near to capturing the beautiful, deep blue, ultra high gloss finish.)

I like it a lot and it's a wonderful revolver to shoot. But, I shoot my Smith & Wesson Model 15-3 with 4" barrel (produced in 1975) just as well. And, my Ruger "Couger" (A Ruger Security Six frame with Colt Python 4" barrel, assembled in the early 1980's by a very talented gunsmith) is very close.
